Many Different Kinds Of Love is the latest book by one of Britain's best loved poets combining a collection of new prose poems, coronavirus diaries of his nurses and original illustrations by Chris Riddell.
In March 2020, Michael Rosen became unwell. Soon he was struggling to breathe, and he was admitted to hospital with coronavirus. What followed was months on the wards: a month in an induced coma, and weeks of rehab and recovery as the NHS saved his life, and then got him back on his feet. Throughout it all, a diary was kept at the end of Michael's bed, where his nurses wrote him letters of hope and support. And as soon as he was awake, he was ready to start writing his own story.
'An astonishingly original and moving book' - David Walliams
'Emotional...impossible to read without a lump in the throat.' -The Observer
